Note to self…or Cocoa Daisy July Projects

It was so fun working with this kit! I love all sorts of text and office themed papers and embellishments so I totally fell in Love with the Cocoa Daisy Kit.

I can’t stop

The photo shows my grandmother and the quote is from the Cocoa Daisy business card. I love it!

Lot’s of paper tearing and distressing here.

*my story*

my husband is a real goof- LOL- every time we go hiking, he does those things, it is actually so predictable and still I can’t stop laughing about it.

I handcut five circles, cut some slits to the middle and added a brad as a flower center to create those flowers.

I added also some Ranger Crackle Paint to the paper and the photo to get some more texture.

*the roof*

Seeing the roof when I climbed the chimney ladder in 2004 sold the yet to be built apartment to me. I still love our our roof and the view and the picture reminds me on that day when I came up the ladder and was able to visualize the terrace on top.

some faux stitching inside the circle stamp and the border.

I also had fun playing with the twine and for better contrast I traced the letters.

*Wochenend und Sonnenschein*

the 7Gypsies picture holder in the kit was the perfect little gift for my great aunt who is in short term care right now – attached one of her favorite pictures (and mine too) of her brother and sister (my grandmother).

What would be a “note to self” for you today? My note to self today is “BREATHE ” ;)
